Spurs boss keen on Beckham

The 36-year-old is desperate to feature for Team GB at London 2012 and has recently been linked with a return to the Premier League, with new QPR owner Tony Fernandes already making contact with Beckham’s advisors.

Spurs boss Redknapp said: “If David wants to come to Tottenham I’d welcome him with open arms.

“He’s definitely still good enough to play in the Premier League.

“His game was never about pace so whether he’s quick or not isn’t an issue.

“David’s unique quality is his use of the ball and his ability to pick out a player with a pinpoint pass.

“He is unbelievable and still an exceptional talent.

“I know first hand because we had him here last winter and he was terrific around the place.

“You couldn’t find a nicer fella and a better professional.

“He’s the best example there is for any young player, how he looks after himself, how he trains and how he’s stayed an ordinary guy despite his extraordinary success.

“He is worth his weight in gold, he’d be an asset for any club. I’d have him here, that’s for sure.

“He wouldn’t be able to play until the January transfer window opens, though, because we’ve already lodged our 25 players with the Premier League.

“But he’d be a great one to have around the club again.”

Beckham’s current contract with LA Galaxy is set to expire at the end of the current Major League Soccer season.

Beckham has been offered a new deal by the Galaxy, but has so far not signed on.
